Mark Zuckerberg Has a New Puli
Beast has his own Facebook profile

The CEO and founder of Facebook has a new buddy—Mark Zuckerberg brought home a Puli this past weekend. The new pup is named Beast and has his own Facebook page. Beast has more than 23,000 fans already, with more being added every hour.

 

Beast’s Facebook page tells us that he likes “cuddling, loving and eating” and that though he was born in Grants Pass, Ore., he is a type of Hungarian Sheepdog. He has recently learned to climb the stairs.
 
Press reports have ranged from congratulatory to cynical, suggesting that Zuckerberg only got a dog to soften his public image. Photos of Beast with Zuckerberg and his girlfriend show him to be fluffy and photogenic and suggest that Beast is receiving a lot of loving and attention.
